Here’s a beautiful reflection on Mark 1:40-45, the gospel reading for February 12, 2012. It was written by Anne Osdieck from the Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University.
(inspired by Mark 1: 40-45)
A leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said,
“If you wish, you can make me clean.” (Mark 1:40-45)
we kneel before you.
Reach out and
put your hand on us.
Bind up our terrible wounds.
to be wounded
Caress your world.
Use us to
